PSYCHOTHERAPY

What is Psychotherapy? Psychotherapy can be considered an alternative healing therapy that involves learning to increase self awareness in order to realize maximum human potential, thereby helping us to live more authentically with improved relationships, professional and financial successes, balance and grace. Psychotherapy is a general term describing many specific types of therapy such as talk therapy, narrative therapy, psycho-social therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy and counseling. Psychotherapy treatments are commonly used for psychological problems on an individual basis, with couples, families and groups. Forms of communication used in psychotherapy healing can include writing, artwork, music and dramatic theater. A psychotherapy practitioner may be a psychologist, marriage and family therapist, occupational therapist, counselor, psychiatric nurse, licensed clinical social worker or psychiatrist.   What we refer to as psychotherapy medicine has been practiced as far back as ancient Greece.  It is thought that the first recorded use of psychotherapy was performed by Dr. Josef Breuer.  Dr. Breuer would go on to be a close friend, teacher and collaborator with Sigmund Freud.  Dr. Breuer observed a woman who suffered from paralysis felt better after she ‘talked’ to him about her symptoms.  It is thought Sigmund Freud employed this ‘talking cure’ form of treatment and later created what we refer to as ‘psychoanalysis’ in Vienna, Austria in 1881.  A trained neurologist, he began working with patients who were classified as hysterical.  He continued practicing psychoanalysis into the 1930’s.   His psychotherapy treatment work was later built on by Karl Jung, Anna Freud and Otto Frank among others.  In the 1940’s, pioneer Carl Rogers brought forth a humanistic approach which rose to prominence by the 1950’s.  Psychoanalysis, humanism and Ivan Pavlov’s work in behaviorism laid the cornerstones for teaching psychology in the United States today.   Psychotherapy is an alternative healing therapy that is a constantly growing. Today there are over 450,000 licensed psychotherapists in the United States.  General research shows that the average length of psychotherapy treatment is between 6 and 10 sessions.  It has been reported that Americans spend about $55 billion on psychotherapy annually.     All Things Healing promotes psychotherapy, an alternative healing therapy, with psychotherapy information presented in articles and video form.  For more and updated information, visit us online regularly!

If the act of conjuring an image of your elder self presents a challenge, you are not alone. Most of us have difficulty imagining our future, and few of us want to invite the image of our bodies in decline. This is understandable, as we are the consumers of a culture that invests heavily in the erasure of wrinkles, the preservation of youth and the marginalization of older adults...

 

Editor's Note from Debbie Allen: Elizabeth Wolfson is in the forefront of envisioning what is possible for baby boomers as they become the new elders of our culture and offers a hopeful framework for moving into the later years in life.

What we want most in life is love. What we're most afraid of is love. Sad but true. Millions of people are plagued by the ambivalence: You want it and push it away. Just when you find someone who does love you, can love you and wants to love you, you sabotage the relationship in some way...

We have a natural tendency to blame ourselves when something goes wrong in our lives. This is because we have evolved to experience emotions like shame and regret, especially when we behave in a ways that violate the expectations of ourselves and others...

 

Editor´s Note from Debbie Allen: Shame is at the root of many psychological problems. Learning self-forgiveness is a step on the path of removing feelings of shame. Steve Handel has looked at the research on forgiveness and offers some helpful tips about how to forgive oneself.

Along the disputed frontier between religion and science, there have always been the peacemakers looking for a way to bridge the gap, or at least to minimize the collateral damage of battle. One method for achieving this is just better cartography — a more definite line of demarcation between the two domains, and more solid agreements about staying on your own side of the fence...

A sense of what’s unfair is a deeply ingrained part of being human: We know a surprising amount about this thanks to a decade of intense study in the fields of economics, psychology, ethology (animal behavior) and neuroscience. A trendy term borrowed from economics — inequity aversion — has spread to other disciplines as a description of the special behavior exhibited by humans and some primates when they feel that either they are getting a raw deal, or someone they care about is getting a raw deal. Among humans, inequity aversion is universal across societies, according to at least one recent study...

There is a wonderful article on the Sacred Living Page of ATH titled, "Grace Reaches Down." There are times then we as psychotherapists, carry a bit of the despair of the people we see. We stand at the edge of the abyss with our clients...


 

Editor's Note from Debbie Allen: What happens when we are surrounded by too many choices? Why do choices provoke anxiety for some people and not for others? Is our culture of consumption leading us to have unrealistic expectations that results in feelings of failure and disappointment? Renata Salecl explores these and other questions in this thought RSA Animate Video.

Narcissism is a broad spectrum of behaviors. On a scale of 1 - 10, Healthy Narcissism is a one, and Pathological Narcissism, or Narcissistic Personality Disorder, (NPD) is a 10.

Healthy Narcissism is something we all can use. It's having a healthy self-esteem. It's what makes us pick ourselves up after experiencing failure and going on towards the next goal. It's what gives us the ability to help each other, and to love someone - as we already know how to love ourselves...

 

Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wolfson: This article offers excellent insight into both the overt and the sometimes subtle dynamics in a couple’s relationship that precipitate and perpetuate “Narcissistic Victim Syndrome.” The author describes some of the manifestations of a narcissistic personality that influence co-dependence and provides suggestions for helping to recognized and disengage from this unhealthy dynamic.

by Jeane Rhodes, PhD

In Part One, we introduced the difficulty of attributing consciousness to the unborn child and newborn infant. To the neurologists, consciousness itself is only a manifestation of neurological functioning, so the debate involves establishing that structures are in place to account for consciousness. There is some evidence that the development of fetal organs, structures, and systems are coincident to use...

 

Editor´s Note from Nancy Burnett: Jeane continues her introduction to the field of pre and perinatal psychology in this second part of a two-part series. She connects the history to consciousness and the psychoanalytic field and targets health as the central concern of value. Students, practitioners, and everyday readers will discover wisdom in Jean's introduction. See Part 1.


Psychotherapy


by Jeane Rhodes, PhD

The field of Birth Psychology or, more formally, Pre- and Perinatal Psychology and Health is relatively new to psychology. The incorporation of the biological component is a relatively recent development in psychology. The reuniting of body and mind may be one of the keys that leads us to a greater understanding of ourselves as human beings...

 

Editor´s Note from Nancy Burnett: Jeane introduces us to the field of pre and perinatal psychology by raising interesting questions we've all likely wondered about. What happens to us in the womb before we are born? How does our experience before birth influence the rest of our lives? Her two-part series will both inspire more questions and answer others.

Psychotherapy


 

by Graham Wilson

It’s important to be clear about the behaviours that you are seeking to reinforce, the diversity of people and their tendency to find jobs that suit their personality, and to ensure that complex and conflicting desirable behaviours are suitably reinforced.

Editors Note:
Psychology principles based on motivation and reward are used in organizational development to motivate people to improve job performance, to produce more products, and be more creative. Dr Graham Wilson has some interesting things to say about the importance of finding the match of incentive to the personality of the employee.  I think you'll enjoy reading Dr.Wilson's article and then watching this RSA Video adapted from a talk by Dan Pink...

PSYCHOTHERAPY

When You Hear Your Partner, Are You Listening?

by David McCann, Ph.D. & Janis McCann, Ph.D.

The art of listening is the heart of communication. We believe that if we do not come together and listen to one another, we cannot have a healthy culture. But if we do sit down and listen to one another, we can remake the world—one relationship at a time.
